Private Incoming Health Insurance (also known as Travel Health Insurance, Private Travel Insurance, Schengen Health Insurance) is mandatory for any student that is planning to arrive in Germany before their studies actually start as long as this period can not be covered by the Public Health Insurance funds.
Expatrio offers its customers to get DR-WALTER Private Health Insurance that is fully acceptable by the German Authorities and can offer a holistic coverage for the period before studies. With Expatrio Value Package and Health Insurance Plus you are entitled to free Private Health Insurance for the first 92 days of your stay in Germany.
If you are coming to Germany for a language course, Private Health Insurance would be the only option that is allowed, as long as language students are not eligible for Public Health Insurance funds. In such a case, you would need the Private Health Insurance for the whole duration of your course.
